Vitra Akari 10A Floor Lamp by Isamu Noguchi


In 1951, Isamu Noguchi started to design the Akari Light Sculptures, a total of over 100 hand-made Shoji-paper models for table lights, standard lamps or ceiling luminaires. The Japanese word "akari" means brightness and light, but also lightness. 
"The light of Akari is like the light of the sun filtered through the paper of shoji. The harshness of electricity is thus transformed
through the magic of paper back to the light of our origin – the sun. So that its warmth may continue to fill our rooms at night".
(Isamu Noguchi)
